Dating of dinosaurs bones
Thus, if collagen is present, the bones could be carbon-dated.
But given the known decay rate of radiocarbon, none of it could remain after 60,000 years.
This new assertion not only ignores evidence that radioisotopes experienced accelerated decay, probably during the Genesis Flood, but also ignores two totally different natural processes that could be used to help verify the researchers' claim that the new technique was "successful." First, as non-mineralized original dinosaur bone, the samples might contain the primary bone materials hydroxyapatite and collagen protein.Then, the current amount of radioisotope is compared to the amount of stable element into which it is slowly changing. However, evidence has mounted that radioisotopes underwent a period of radical acceleration of decay in the past.This evidence has indicated that radioisotopes have not decayed at a constant rate, and therefore the radiodating "clocks" in general are all broken.The theoretical limit for C-14 dating is 100,000 years using AMS, but for practical purposes it is 45,000 to 55,000 years.If dinosaur bones are 65 million years old, there should not be one atom of C-14 left in them.
